Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP)


Sponsored Programs provides significant benefits to the University by helping to further its educational, research and community service mission by facilitating research (extramural and intramural) and other projects that enrich the scholarly endeavors of faculty and students. 

While OSP serves to enhance the services provided by the University, its core function is to assist CSUF faculty and staff in developing and administering funded projects.  Our services provide more flexibility with an entrepreneurial framework to carry out these activities not normally provided for in the state budget, eliminating undue governmental restrictions. 

OSP also ensure the responsible stewardship of sponsored funds to guarantee efficiency and cost effectiveness in ASC operations.  All procedures and actions are designed to conform to federal and state laws and regulations, CSU, University and Auxiliary policies.



The CSUF Auxiliary Services Corporation (ASC) is a non-profit public corporation that was incorporated in 1959 for the purpose of promoting and assisting the educational mission of Cal State Fullerton.
